The community is ready for a better solution.
redactX is dedicated to solving these issues by setting a new standard in the level of automation, flexibility, specificity, and accuracy involved in video redaction. The focus is to reduce the level of manual effort needed to generate an acceptable output file from hours and days to just minutes, in most cases.
“The software comes with a library of standard objects that are detected and can be redacted automatically”
In order to accomplish this, the company has created unique technology that lets users specify, with just a few clicks of the mouse, what to redact and what to keep. Faces are automatically detected at any angle of rotation, including the top or back of someone’s head. Users can choose to redact all faces or just specific individuals, and if so which ones. The information is saved and can be reused on future files. The software also detects and recognizes text strings in over 90 languages.
A user can choose to redact all text strings or just some specific words. Words where only some of the characters are matched can still be redacted, according to user settings.
Audio can also be redacted. Users have the option of typing text strings that redactX can listen for in video or audio files and then redact the appropriate segments. All of these features individually operate at state-of-the-art levels in terms of both accuracy and speed. Combined, the redactX package provides a level of flexibility and precision, that significantly eases the workflow and decreases the time required of law enforcement personnel.
Complementing these extensive capabilities is an advanced browser-based user interface that adjusts to the level of skill of the user. At its simplest, a user can literally just upload a file, click a button, and redact a video. More complex situations are also just a few clicks away, as needed. Multiple users can access the software at the same time. If the video file is large, a user can just add the job to the queue and receive an e-mail when it’s completed. The software can be installed on customer premises or run in the cloud (AWS GovCloud and others).
From its inception, redactX wanted to offer a product that dramatically reduces the amount of effort needed to produce a redacted video file and that raises the bar in terms of automation and accuracy
“From its inception, redactX wanted to offer a product that dramatically reduced the amount of effort needed to produce a redacted video file while also raising the bar in terms of automation and accuracy. Our customers are telling us that we have achieved this objective. It’s very satisfying to be able to deliver such a real-world solution,”informs Tom Scanland, SVP at redactX.
